Kieran Storm and Tristan Sky's journey through the spiral. See how far they've already come, and how much farther they will go.

4.29.2011

Alright, now for the actual post:

First off I want to say that I am sorry for all those that are suffering due to the storms devastation. We were lucky here but only barely, and for this I am very thankful. 

Second I want to say I am thankful for #Twizards out there, because you all rock, and make this community awesome. I am sorry that some of you are being used as a way to make someone elses blog look good. I just hope that they stop, and if they ever copy anything from myself or Z, or even Grace, you can bet I will be pressing that button at the top of their blog that says "report abuse" and follow the prompt all the way to copyright violation. It's pretty sad they are doing this because they are "too lazy" their words, not mine, to post their own work.

Thirdly, I will talk about Wintertusk. Am definitely loving the world, the land and the story line. However, playing on TR only makes me sad, because I have two items on TR that I would love to have in LR but can't afford to have. That is the life amulet, for Kieran, and the lifeforce blade, for Kieran as well. I also bought some mega snacks to see possible talents my Spineyfish will manifest. Oh how I wish! It's going to take me forever to get him to Epic LOL. I probably wont get it done until well after my subscription to Wizard101 has expired, eek. That is for sure. Not to mention, I don't want to get bored of the world before I get to play it on Live.

Short post; Stay safe!

I had planned on making a blog post, all about our adventures, and even misadventures in the test realm thus far, but unfortunately weather has other plans for us. Z and I have been busy preparing for possibly multiple tornadoes in our area. Last we heard we were in direct path for the same storm cell that has produced, already an f5 tornado. The storm cell had not weakened any, and it's expected to be in our area with in some time.

Preparing the animals, preparing food, water, packing up important documents, and possibly even, haven't decided yet, putting our computers away for safe keeping.

We hope everyone, whether you are reading this or not, whether you play wizard101 or not, every life stays safe, during these severe storms. We pray for those affected, and are praying for those who have family, friends, loved ones affected, or those who might be affected. Basically, we are praying.

Troubles with the Test Realm.

It would seem that X and myself have had the most horrible time with the test realm. We had been on and off all day due to storms and no internet access because of that and when we do finally get on which was well after 8pm we find out that the test realm is up and running with the new content of Wintertusk and all the other exciting add ons that i'm sure all you bloggers have already written about.

When we finally got home and could access the internet we started to patch the test realm and it took me forever. Longer than it did for X but thats typical for me. >.< Once in I couldn't move anywhere and neither could he. We had to redownload every thing once again. Not just the new content. So, while trying to do all the downloading, we leveled up a pet with mega snacks and loaded our main houses. Still wasn't done and it really didn't seem like it was ever going to get done since it looked as if it wasn't going anywhere.

Wizard101, Runescape and More

Lots has happened in the Spiral for me, though in reality it just feels as if nothing has happened. Maybe that's because a lot of what I had wanted to achieve hasn't quite come to fruit yet. Mostly, pet leveling. I think I've managed to level up 3 pets from teen to adult, and about 6 pets from baby to teen. I have said this before, and I'm saying it again. I really wish KI would do something about the pet games. 

They are too boring (more so redundant) for the minimal rewards you get from them. I understand that's why they put the mega snacks in, but let's face it, I will never be buying any of them. $5 is just too much to pay for them. And I do have gardens full of supposed plants that drop said snacks. So far out of 50 harvests, I've gotten 3. Yes folks, just three.

Sparky that I finally leveled up to adult. Really enjoy having him along side my diviner.

Wizard vs Real Life

Ok so I'm not able to get in as much wizard101 time as I would like thanks to work, school, & now also my internet connection. My household has been having issues connecting & staying connected to the Internet the last couple of days. My dad says he is gonna give it a couple of weeks (like 1 or 2) before he once again starts calling & complaining because the problem could be somewhere in one of the fire damaged areas in town. Yea we had some fires in my city this past weekend, but no one was actually physically hurt as far as I know. & it looks like my connection is being friendly again so I can post this myself.

Here is what I worked on in wizard: Grace's garden, which contains about 7 pink dandelion & 1 silver trumpet vine. She is currently the only one of my characters that I'm doing a garden for right now because of my limited time online. I also worked on leveling up some of my baby pets because I want them to be adults so that one day I'll be able to add them to the list of pets X & Z have on here that can be hatched with. Right now I have a satyr & a fierce hound as adults & am currently working on my pet rock which is in it's teens right now. When I run out of energy for that then I can usually be found running around on Christina (my ice char) working on her quests, which currently has her in Knights Court (I think that's the name. I know it's knights something) in MB.

Random Screenies of drops by Zaolan.

Not too much to blog about on my behalf minus the issues yesterday but moving on from that specific situation X and myself have been farming a bit and since for whatever reason – my print screen hasn’t been wanting to work for me. I did, however, find four screenies that made it through from a while back in march to recent whether on Tristan or one of my other chars. So, that’s good. Most of the farming has been at the Jade Oni to try and get as many holiday drops as possible, and also the most illusive Jade Oni pet for myself.

I’ll post those here in a second but X and I are hard at work also on trying to spruce this place up, since we’re now paying for our domain. We’ll probably set up a few pages of all the drops we’ve personally made and hopefully get around to updating our pet page as well in case some of you wizards are in need of a specific pet hatch. We also are wanting to add a few other things for this place to make it unique and interesting but that will have to be talked about at a later time since we’re wanting to get it all set up first before really going to say “The new and improved Stormy skies!” Etc.

Who knew..

..that something so rewarding, could turn in to something so ugly. So, today, had a bit of confrontation from someone on twitter, who apparently is offended (at least it would seem that way by how they reacted, and then acted) about the fact that I personally received 2k crowns from KI for completing the survey. I remember perfectly it told me 2k. When my sister first told me about the survey, she told me “hey, they have a survey up to get 2k crowns. Be sure to take it.” 

And today was the day when we were supposed to get our crowns. I am in fact +2k richer. This makes me happy. I was thinking of all the things I could get with this 2k crowns. Now, I want to take it and throw it out the window. But I can’t. Because it’s a game. And I can’t really take what’s in the game and throw it away, now can I? At least not currency. Unless I bought something with it, and then trashed that item. But, what good would that do?

Wow, blogger, just wow..

So, because this weird thing was showing up in blog rolls rss' for our blog, it was probably deferring a lot of people! I had enabled the blog to be accessable and publishable through windows live writer, and it needed to download the theme of the blog. Well in order to do that, it had to post and then delete post, real quick. And despite the actual post does not exist on our blog, nor through the rss' of feeder programs, it however has shown up on other bloggers blog rolls. Hence this post, to direct you to the actual post of the day.

Oh how I wish, test is now live, and whoa, seriously?

Again, happy wizarding everyone!

Oh how I wish, test is now live, and whoa, seriously?

Well, as you’ve all seen, or heard by now Stormy Skies has it’s own custom domain. Yay. This is the first time I’ve owned a domain that went to nothing but a blog before, so it’s kind of new. Also, the first time I’ve used google as the domains host. So I’ve been trying to learn how things work behind the scenes here. You should all have heard by now that mounts will be free to roam houses in coming updates, like the pets do.

Been doing some things ITS but nothing too big. Mostly farming. Managed to snag a couple Staff of the White Rabbit from the Jade Oni. Going to be doing some more farming today at him, as well as maybe some Nightshade. Since there is now a bunny costume in game. Haha.

Go us! :p

I would have blogged sooner but we (Xinaed, Grace and myself) were waiting for a few days for one reason and one reason only. If you look up at the address bar what do you see? The URL, correct? Right! We finally got ourselves a custom domain. Woo! We haven't tried getting on KI's blog roll yet but we'll eventually get around to it. We were waiting to blog since the redirect wasn't working so we didn't want people getting lost.

That alone is some big news for us. We'll hopefully be blogging more (ahem. Grace... :p Just teasing ya.) and maybe even playing wizard more. But, speaking of lost... While moving things around, changing our layout somewhat, and everything we lost our blog roll list. So, if any of you all that read our blog and we are on your blog roll list, or would like to add us to yours if we aren't already email us at xyz@ xstormyskiesz .com minus the spaces of course there, and give us the appropriate information and we'll get that all set up again ASAP.

Moving on..

Mount Week and More from Xinaed;

If you haven’t heard by now that it’s mount week ITS then where in the world have you been? Everyone’s talking about it. It’s the buzz about twitter, facebook, wizard101central, DoaW and much much more. Personally, I wouldn’t mind have them all, but, I would really love to have me some swiftshadow wings (been wanting them, and the seraphwings since they first came out!) And it just so happens that HiaG is giving away codes for the wings! I’m trying to do what she has requested, but I’m kind of confused with her rules.

But then again, I confuse easily. Also been keeping track of all the codes that DoaW has been giving out. At least, the ones I’ve seen. It’s hard to do when I can’t have twitter open most of the time. The way our net has been acting lately we can’t keep anything open that is pulling from the internet, if we are trying to play Wizard, or do anything else on line that we might want to do. So it’s been really frustrating. There are other really cool mounts, but like said, I’m not all that in tune with things going on due to net being wonky. I get what I get, and that’s it.

Just in case you haven’t heard, here is the link to Wizard101’s official announcement on said contests. Clicky Clicky. Kind of sad that we weren’t chosen to participate, but we’re thinking we missed the opportunity one of those times we couldn’t have twitter open, or even a browser. Oh well. It would have been fun to finally host a contest, where the prizes are uber, and better yet, sponsored! One thing I will say, is that not having access to twitter and other social networking sites makes one feel so left out of the community.
